I think Eyes of the World is one of their best compositions.
And when I want to hear one of my favorite versions, I go
to 9/3/77 . It's just so well played. Jerry's guitar work is jedi material.

I remember taking guitar lessons and brought a tape of this to my guitar teacher. He said that Jerry is just noodling around with major 7th chords. Well, major 7th chords are part of that sound, but noodling? So I asked him to show me what Jerry was doing, especially the seamless blending of single note melodies with chordal progressions. Of course, he had no clue.

On to another guitar teacher... :-)

The 73-74 are the superior versions (in my opinion), but the eighties pulled out some great ones too. One that I really like, not from anu of the aforementioned years, is from the "One From the Vault", American Music Hall, 1975. That has a real "Eyes" and the "Help > Slip > Franks" isn't too shabby either.
